Weddings

Sarah & Brennan

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing an elopement! Brennan has been traveling between St. Louis and Europe for work for the last several months, and Sarah will be joining him in November. They decided to go ahead and elope to make the work visa process easier and smoother. Sarah and Brennan will return to St. Louis next September and have a bigger wedding to celebrate with friends and family. :)

 

Lindsay & Devin

When Lindsay was in high school she began thinking about dating and wondering about qualities she would look for in a boyfriend and later down the road, a future husband. Unlike most teenage girls Lindsay wasn't dead set on smoldering good looks, instead she prayed for a Godly man. A man who loved Jesus and who would show her the same kind of love. She went on to college and graduated from the University of Indiana...still praying for this man to come into her life. She was accepted to Grad school in Ohio and went to a bible study one evening, it was there that she met Devin. He was a Godly man, a man she had prayed for...and he wasn't bad looking either. ;) They like most couples have had ups and downs but through it all their faith remained and made them stronger. Lindsay and Devin were married last weekend, they shared their love and commitment to each other before God, their families and friends. Lindsay and Devin, thank you SO much for bringing me to Northern Illinois to photograph your wedding! I know God has great things in store for you both and I wish you all the best! Much love and thanks! - A :)

Christina & Chad

They met in college, their Freshman year to be exact. They instantly hit it off and knew this was unlike any other relationship they had been in. Christina and Chad shared so many common interests, traveling, food (Christina says they are foodies and love trying new restaurants) and trips to Disneyland. After being together for nearly nine years they were married a few weeks ago in sunny Walnut Creek, CA. I was honored to be a part of their beautiful day! Thank you for flying me out Christina and Chad I had a wonderful time with you and your families! :)

 

Kristin & Shawn

Kristin had her heart broken in college and swore she'd never love again, then she met Shawn. They met at work and a casual friendship turned into so much more. As Kristin's sister mentioned in her toast, "he taught her how to love again, they are perfect for one another." Kristin and Shawn were married at the Park Avenue Mansion, a very simple, small and intimate wedding in front of immediate family and a few close friends. Kristin and Shawn thank you for allowing me to share the evening with you! - A :)

Jessie & John

Jessie's father said a few words at the reception. He mentioned that after Jessie came home and talked about John he asked what made him so different. Jessie replied, "because he makes me feel like I'm special." Jessie is a special, wonderful woman and it makes me so happy to have documented their wedding. :)

Amy & Caleb

High School sweethearts + quaint small town = perfectly sweet wedding. Amy and Caleb grew up in this small town, their parents even got married in the same church. They opted not to have a wedding party, which made for a short, sweet and intimate wedding. :)

Callie & Ryan

I met Callie five years ago when I photographed her sister Chelsea's wedding. I was thrilled when Callie called and told me that she was engaged and wanted me as her wedding photographer too! Callie and Ryan could not have asked for a better day, it was gorgeous! Thank you so much for having me photograph your wedding, it was an honor to see your family again! I hope you had an amazing time in Jamaica. Thank you! - A :)
